that possibly as part of the fiscal cliff negotiations. caller: right. it will cost them in the long run. host: because the money is coming out of social security. politicians say that will not happen. they say social security will have its money. caller: they tell you all kinds of things. host: john in atlanta, democratic caller. caller: how are you? it seems like it is open phones. i think as far as the fiscal cliff is concerned, the democrats and republicans need to come together and they need to do that rather quickly, because that's the way i feel about it. host: do you think it decides it should just agree to pass the tax cuts -- extend the tax cuts for middle-class americans and then wait until later to resume the debate over spending and tax cuts for wealthy americans? caller: they should start with that. and if they agree on that, then they can go on to the next thing. but this lagging and dragging along on both sides makes no sense. host: here is the washington post this morning.

when the president calls for all the new taxes in the fiscal cliff negotiation, mr. president we already have a big tax increase that will hit on january 2nd. that of course is the obamacare taxes. you mentioned one of them, the tax on medical devices and medical equipment, bill, which i agree with, congressman price. that will reduce innovation and will reduce the kind of invention and new products we need to keep people healthier. in addition to that, bill, don't forget there is something called 3.8% investment tax surcharge in the obamacare bill that starts in january. one of the things that the president says is a little misleading i will only raise tax rates back where they were in the clinton era. you heard him say that a lot of times, bill. he is not including that 3.8% investment tax that will raise the taxes higher than they were in the '90s. bill: i see. seeing it right here. if you make more than $200,000. >> that's right. bill: if you're in a household of 250 or above, subject to a new 3.8% tax. well, you know, ultimately republicans argue this is coming down on the b

'll offer that excuse. i don't think it will affect the fiscal cliff negotiations at all. we may go up to an 8% unemployment rate again. that's what we may do. it was 7.9 in october. it could be 8% in the number out today. >> brian: stewart, we're going to be watching this. we're going to be tossing to you to bring us the numbers as they come in for some instant analysis. so you'll small cast on the "fox business" network and our network. >> 8:30, we get the number this morning. >> brian: then you will change outfits, maybe hair styles and at 9:20 lost varney and company. >> totally different guy at 9:20. >> brian: thanks. have a great weekend. >> thanks. >> brian: i know you don't like to talk to me in the halls. coming up straight ahead, fema workers told to go sightseeing instead of helping sandy victims. that scary story ahead. then he was told he would never walk again. but the man you're about to meet is defying the odds. his motivation? to walk down the aisle. that story, more on that coming your way. i'm doing my own sleep study. advil pm® or tylenol pm. the advil pm® guy is
" continues. host: we have been breaking apart the fiscal cliff talks, looking a different policy aspects of the negotiations and today we focus on domestic spending. charles clark, senior correspondent with government executive me -- media group is here. sequestration, if it happens, we talk about automatic spending cuts, but what is sequestration? they usedthe 1980's, to talk about the vegomatic, a late-night advertisement that did the cutting for you. in 2011, congress had a super committee that was supposed to determine the cuts and they failed. the backup plan was something nobody wanted, but it was supposed to put fear into everyone, and that was across- the-board cuts of about $500 billion over 10 years. host: in domestic spending? guest: yes, and another $500 billion in national security- related spending. host: in 2013, we're talking about a total of $109 billion in cuts. discretionary spending makes up about $38 billion. non-defense mandatory makes up about $17 billion. can you explain the difference? guest: mandatory has to do with entitlement programs that beneficiaries are pe
of the fiscal cliff looming larger as the clock ticks toward the deadline on january 1st. negotiators are trying to hammer out a deal over tax hikes and spending cuts searching for common ground. amid all the back and forth there are signing of a compromise. steve centanni is live in washington. are the two sides any closer together? >> reporter: there are two important signs today. speaker, house speaker john boehner met with president obama at the. we don't know how long they met or exactly what they talked about, but the white house says lines of communication are open and face-to-face meeting is on important. at the same time republicans say they will accept the demands for higher taxes on the wealthy if it goes along with spending cuts entitlements like medicare and social security. listen.... >> a lot of people are putting forth a theory. i think it has merit where you give the president 2% increase he is talking about on the top 2 percent. i am beginning to believe that is the best route for us to take. >> reporter: many other republicans, of course, standing firm against any tax increase
, president is doing neither. this is a game of chicken, which i think is designed to go over the fiscal cliff, and pin the blame on the republins, i understand why the president is doing it for political reasons but i don't think that the republicans have to surrender themselves in this game of chicken. lou: it seems the ultimatum, raise taxes on top 2%, why not let him eat to, it is his decision, go for it, if you don't want a mature, and intelligence, and responsible negotiation, you do not know who you are dealing with, it is called a constitutional bodyf government. >> it is john's right, this is politics, hard and fast, 1995 all over again, skes are high and and president wants house back, pin the blame on the republicans make them look like right wing lunatics and grab the chips, they aren a no-win position. lou: we'll be back, marianne has to weigh in and a bunch more as we continue with the a team stay with us. lou: we're back with the a-team, marianne, senator reid said he is dubious there would be a deal reached? >> now that everyone is talking about it everyone is more pessimistic.
, the "national review" is reporting that if the fiscal cliff talks go sour, that john boehner might have a challenge for his speaker post. do you agree with that? >> i think speaker boehner is extremely strong in his position. he's been very, very smart, including the republican leadership, in his negotiations. while it's just him and president obama, he has them inside the room before he goes and meets with the president, he talks to them and they reflect the views of the entire conference. the key here with the entire deal is that the devil is in the details. once these details come out, it's going to take arm-twisting by both sides. it's going to take calls from the president and democrats. it's going to take the speaker to make sure republican conference members are falling into line and that's where we're going to see, when the rubber meets the road, if this deal can get done. remember, you know, health care reform by the president passed on december 24th. so we do have a president there just going right up to christmas. and if it doesn't happen at christmastime, they'll be coming b
. >> so a lot of democrats are saying that no big deal if you go over the fiscal cliff. it seems like republicans are moving towards giving in on the tax rates. might even just vote on the tax portion of the negotiations and kick the rest into january to deal with. if you get a deal on the taxes that president obama seems like he would sign, what happens to the government on the second half of the cliff, the sequester and other extenders? you were at omb. can the government deal with that? can we be okay? >> there's a lot of ifs. republicans don't want to raise taxes on the middle class. they want to pass a bill to prevent increase on rates on the middle class. that would be a good thing. if we got past january 3rd and the sequester went into effect, there are a ways to move through money in accounts where you can buy a few weeks. that's an important thing to do. now don't get me wrong. there would still be a huge impa impact. i don't know what the markets would do. wall street is in a mind if we go past january 3rd, we will fall off the cliff. and secondly, there are people who rely
